Most frum kallahs would consider it to tight on the tush. It’s not so tznius.

Maybe OP belongs to the community which wears pencil skirts?

The specific example in the photo is tighter than I would consider modest, but it would probably look less egregious of they had backed the lace in white and not nude fabric. Maybe the OP is looking for something like that.

OP - I do like the scalloped lace. For my wedding, I found at Jewish gemach a full skirted dress with a long scalloped train. Very classy, though the total fabric was a bit heavy for dancing! If I could do it again, I probably would have foregone the train for a more practical lace and tulle combination. The kallah should be able to have fun on her wedding day, and a tight long dress won't let her dance!

I agree. I'm super modern and don't see how that's appropriate at all. I don't understand how that would be in style with frum people.

Ok not that tight, but you dont see any fitted styles at all in frum places.

They only show huge ballgowns in the frum places.

Maybe it's just the photo or the fabric (white lace with nude underlay), but I feel like I am staring at the bride's bare tush showing through the holes in the lace of a very tight dress.

This seems wildly inconsistent with how most frum brides present themselves.

Not to mention it looks impossible to dance in a tight dress with all that fabric rustling around at the bottom. Maybe for a secular wedding with slow dancing, but for simcha dancing it looks unsuitable. Is there some way to pin it up for dancing?

In short, it seems like an inappropriate choice for a frum wedding. I wouldn't be surprised if frum stores tend not to carry this style.

It also looks difficult to dance with.

Just follow jewish wedding photographers on Instagram and you will get a plethora of current wedding dresses.

A-line instead of ballgown is very nice, also princess seams with an A-line skirt. There are beautiful slimmer styles that are not form fitting like the mermaid and fishtail styles. I have also seen beautiful drop-waist gowns that give a similar look to the fishtail.

tali shurin has stuff that are less "poofy"
https://www.instagram.com/tali.....hl=en

she is very expensive though - and doesn't only cater to the frum community, so not everything is up to halachic tznuis standards, but all aremodest and she can modify if you want

Ah, I see.

Have you tried shopping in stores that don't exclusively cater to the frum community? You'll probably find a wider selection of styles.

It is not uncommon even outside of the frum community to build up gowns (adding sleeves, bringing up necklines, etc.), if that is your concern.

Look online (maybe try TheKnot.com?) for options and go to manufacturers' websites to see shops nearby that sell them.

True. You can try on anything at David's bridal, and then get it built up to tsniyut standards

What do you mean by “in”?
Do you mean trending in the in-town circles? Then no, it’s not in.
Do you mean trending everywhere else? Then I think so.

I’ve seen some people do it. But it’s not “in”.

It was done pre-war by very religious girls and I don’t think it ever came back in the Frum community. But again, you do you.

Also, most Frum kallahs like it very poufy and kallah-like. This is a much more understated look.

Wow. The Tali Shurin designs are gorgeous! The poofy look is not for everyone.
